Android App Pick - Evernote

We have just posted up our 30th App Pick of the Week and this week we are showing off a handy app that keeps you connected and organized at home or on the road.  We talk about Evernote and it's ability to organize notes, files, pictures, schedules and more.  What makes it really handy is that it has a desktop application as well.  Best of all, it's free!  Take a look and enjoy!

Evernote

Please post your thoughts, comments, questions and suggestions for next week's Android App Pick of the Week!


 

Board Bits

If you are looking for a good mATX motherboard for a small case, but don't want to sacrifice power or features, the ASUS Maximus V GENE over at Vortex is a pretty compelling board.  It has Intel's Z77 chipset and supports 3rd Generation Core i7 CPUs from Intel... as well as CrossfireX, SLI and a mixture thanks to LucidLogix - all in an mATX package.

If that board is too big or too expensive, perhaps the Zotac A75-ITX WiFi A-E board over at TechPowerUp will be more to your liking.  This little board supports USB3.0, AMDs FM1 socket CPUs and has one PCIe 16x slot for your favorite Graphics Card.


 

NZXT FZ-140 and FZ-120 Case Fans

FZ-SeriesWe have just taken a look at some fans from NZXT.  While they may not seem like the most exciting product to review, there is a lot of science behind a fan these days.  We have them compared with other great fans from Noctua and Thermaltake in terms of noise, airflow and power consumption.  If you need a new case or CPU fan, check out all the details over here.

Some of the other fans we've tested feature manual fan dials or PWM control (ability to automatically spin up or down based on temperatures), but the FZ-140 and FZ-120 fans have neither and will require some type of fan controller if you don't want them to spin at full speed all the time.


MSI GT683DXR Gaming Laptop

MSI may not be the first name you think of when it comes to gaming laptops, but we've seen that they make a pretty solid product for sure.  Today, HardwareHeaven looks at their GT683DXR and finds out if this beast has the brawn to back up the good looks.

Inside our review sample was a Core i7-2630QM CPU which is a quad core model with hyperthreading that runs at 2.0GHz as standard, turbo-ing up to 2.9GHz when required. This CPUs sits on a HM67 chipset based board...


Big Storage Stack

As we wrap up the hardware news this morning, we've got a bit stack of storage reviews and only one of them has moving parts.  I see a trend here...



NVIDIA Dual Keplar GPU

NVIDIA has torn the wraps off their upcoming GeForce GTX 690 that packs in a pair of GK104 processors to make this the fastest one-slot graphics solution ever built (for a few months at least).  The problem with all of this performance is the price tag that accompanies the card.  At ~$1000 - it's not going to sell to the mainstream consumer.

A heavy duty dual vapor chamber cooling system relying on heavily nickel plated finstacks will sweat what little heat these GPUs pump out. A cast aluminum frame with trivalent chromium plating gives the card a unique look and tremendous rigidity. An injection molded magnesium fan housing adds to the formidable stiffness of the card.
